Cornell researchers develop chemical probe activated by UV light to ...

Inflammation is caused by the immune system as one of the body's responses to eliminate infectious pathogens and other foreign or dangerous agents. When inflammation becomes chronic, it can lead to a host of diseases, including asthma, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and Crohn's disease.

The researchers created a chemical probe that inhibits a reaction mediated by enzymes called histone deacetylases (HDACs). These enzymes regulate genes that turn on when the immune system is challenged and promote inflammation. HDACs also have inhibitors that suppress this inflammatory response, and the probe specifically activates these inhibitors but only in the presence of UV light. This is especially useful since HDACs are ubiquitous and have other biological effects, and most drugs affect the entire system, leading to unintended consequences.

"If you turned off all the HDACs in the body, you would probably be hitting a lot of pathways that you didn't want to turn off," said Chang. "We can control when and where we turn off the HDACs using light. The idea is that you can actually target the tissue that has chronic inflammation and regulate it by selectively inhibiting HDACs in the tissue that's affected."

My personal trainer friend says there is a muscle therapy that helps asthma sufferers. Does it work?

I have had asthma since childhood. Just recently my friend who is a personal trainer said he has been teaching a muscle therapy that retrains muscles in the abodmen and rib cage to work properly. He said some of his clients have had no asthma symptoms


In Dr. Batmanheldi's book, "Your not sick, your thirsty. Your body's many cries for water", the Dr. says asthma is an effect of dehydration. Our brains are about 80% water and our body is about 70%. The brain takes first priority over water


well
i guess not....asthma like ur condition cannot b treated by phsical therapy as u said,it's an allergic condition and the only curative ttt is to stay away from the allergic factor.
u'll lose nothing if u try


Well, as the lungs are a powerful muscle, I might give it a shot. I've never had personal experience, but I do take spiriva for my asthma, which is a muscle relaxer, and have had incredible results, so physical therapy might just do the trick.

What are the 5 general goals of asthma therapy?



One of the main goals of asthma therapy is to control it. The last thing that we would want to have happen is for you to have an attack because they are life threatening. Here's a slide from a university which will explain more about the goals and how
